Subject: Truth!
I have always had an attraction to the swastika - or symbols associated with, or look like, a swastika. It wasn't until I was older that I learned the history of the symbol which I grew to love more and more.

I'm glad that this publication is here to put truth to the history of a symbol which was bastardized by the Germans during the war. I wear the symbol proudly and offer the truth to anyone that questions why I am a 'nazi' when I wear a tshirt that has a swastika on it. The t-shirt was designed by Manwoman.

Thanks for posting this!

edit: Quimby, [sigh], grow up already.
